Call for Papers: Special Issue of the Journal of Global Initiatives

The Jour­nal of Glob­al Ini­tia­tives has issued a call for papers for a spe­cial edi­tion on Korea, sched­uled to be pub­lished in 2010. The Jour­nal of Glob­al Ini­tia­tives is a peer-reviewed, inter­dis­ci­pli­nary jour­nal of inter­na­tion­al pol­i­cy, ped­a­gogy and per­spec­tives, pub­lished twice year­ly by the Ken­ne­saw State Uni­ver­si­ty Press (KSU Press) and the Insti­tute for Glob­al Ini­tia­tives (IGI).

Per­haps because of its loca­tion between two pow­er­ful coun­tries (Japan and Chi­na), Korea is often over­looked and poor­ly under­stood by Amer­i­cans. Yet, there have been many sig­nif­i­cant points of con­tact and inter­ac­tion between Korea and the Unit­ed States. Papers are invit­ed for this spe­cial edi­tion that address any aspect of Kore­an soci­ety and his­to­ry, includ­ing its con­tem­po­rary polit­i­cal, eco­nom­ic, and cul­tur­al life, and that increase under­stand­ing of the rela­tions between Korea and its neigh­bors and between Korea and the Unit­ed States. Arti­cles from all dis­ci­plines are wel­come.

Man­u­scripts should be pre­pared in the APA Style. For fur­ther infor­ma­tion on how to pre­pare and sub­mit your arti­cles, please see the Jour­nal of Glob­al Ini­tia­tives Web site at

To be con­sid­ered for the spe­cial edi­tion on Korea, all arti­cles must be sub­mit­ted elec­tron­i­cal­ly as an attach­ment in Word or RTF for­mat and must reach the edi­tor-in-chief, Dr. Akan­mu G. Ade­bayo (, on or before Mon­day, May 3, 2010.
